Item#31066-T AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Kit – 100 assays
The AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Kit is designed for use with handheld fluorometers such as the Qubit® fluorometers from Thermo Fisher. Unlike absorbance-based measurements, AccuGreen™ Dye is highly selective for double-stranded DNA over single-stranded DNA or RNA.
The linear range of the AccuGreen™ assay is 0.1 to 100 ng of DNA per tube. DNA samples with concentrations between 5 pg/uL and 100 ng/uL may be quantified using sample volumes between 1 and 20 uL (for example, 1 uL of 100 ng/uL is 100 ng total, and 20 uL of 5 pg/uL is 0.1 ng total, which will both fall within the linear range of the assay). If you use the most common sample volume of 10 uL, the starting sample concentration should be 10 pg/uL to 10 ng/uL.
AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity Quantitation Solution also is available separately (catalog no. 31068) for customers who wish to use their own DNA standards.
For a broad range assay to quantify DNA in the range of 0.2-100 ng/uL on the Qubit® fluorometer, see the AccuGreen™ Broad Range dsDNA Quantitation Kit (catalog no. 31069).
For high-sensitivity DNA quantitation using a fluorescent plate reader, we recommend using our AccuClear® or AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation Kits, which provide unprecedented sensitivity, accuracy and wide linear range. See the table below for details on our full line of dsDNA quantitation kits.
